    Concorde is the fastest civilian in the world, period. Please add in service to be accurate.

    Cool, I didn't realise that a business jet could be faster. I thought the larger passenger aircraft had an aerodynamic advantage as it is with ships.

    Cessna came a long way since we used to make jokes about the first Citation, calling it the Nearjet, and telling people it was certified for bird strikes .....from the rear!

    To attain the needed thrust for the X's speed, the engines are huge (they are nearly as large as the available cabin space further forward). This exposes the underling problem of all fast corporate jets: They need a very large power to weight ratio compared with airliners, which is why single turboprop corporate aircraft are so much more economical yet they can fly quite fast given that they are not jets. The new price of a CX was/is around $23 Million. For that price you could buy a used B737 in good condition, with 120 more seats, but I concede that no-one buys a fast corporate jet for economy!

    Why the fuck is it so hard to just say mph instead of km most ppl don't understand that. I just had to explain tp my girl because she watched this video. So try using mph its more common in America bro

    It amazes how uneducated people are. Is the Citation Ten faster then a lear jet? Really? And faster than a787? It is the Fastest Civilian air craft period! I guess watching the video wasn't enough . Must not be true Aviation buffs.

    • CMDR Fly Auburn

      warmfreeze Huh. Fair enough. Just curious though, what held the airframe back from being certified at a comparable MMO?

    • warmfreeze
      warmfreeze Year ago +1

      CMDR Fly Auburn My source: Bombardier aerospace flight test engineering division 5 years :) what you read and what the test vehicle is capable of and personally witnessed are two different things

    • CMDR Fly Auburn
      CMDR Fly Auburn Year ago +5

      warmfreeze Negative. The Lear 85 was a Mach .82 aircraft. That’s a true airspeed of about 470 kts. The Citation X CLIMBS at Mach .82. High speed cruise of Mach .92, ( The X+ has an MMO of .935 !) or a TAS of about 515 kts.
      What you’re referring to is the speed it HAD to achieve in Part 25 Certification tests during high speed dive testing, which is a percentage over the design MMO. The Citation X also had to go supersonic to be certified, due to its Mach .92 design MMO, and it would have been faster than the Lear 85 in a dive also as a result of how that’s calculated and what is required in testing and certification.
      From AC 25-7A; Flight Test Guide for Certification of Transport Category Airplanes:
      “(1) The maximum flight demonstrated dive speed, VDF/MDF, is used when establishing VMO/MMO and the associated speed margins under the provisions of § 25.1505. Both VMO and MMO are then evaluated during flight tests for showing compliance with § 25.253.”
      Everyone would do well to stop with the misinformation here.
      Source: I’m typed in the Citation X and flew the airplane for 2+ years before moving on to another type.

      technically the lear 85 was faster....capible of mach 1.1 but cruised at much slower speeds..however i watched the only lear 85 left get crushed a few months back...

      Adam Cloud no, it doesn’t. The G650 is a Mach .925 aircraft. The X+ was re-certified at .935, allowing it to keep the designation of the “fastest civilian aircraft in production and use.”
